"Death itself would start working backwards."

In what book do you find the following quote? (Place your answers in the comment section.)

"Her knowledge goes back only to the dawn of time. But if she could have looked a little further back, into the stillness and the darkness before Time dawned, she would have read a different incantation. She would have known that when a willing victim who had committed no treachery was killed in a traitor's stead, the Table would crack and Death itself would start working backwards."

I do believe that would be The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe!

Correct!To add a little more to the quote...

"It means" said Aslan, "that though the Witch knew the Deep Magic, there is a magic deeper still which she did not know..." (

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, p.185).
